ROUND THE CIRCLE (OF THE WAR Sooner than anticipated, the British have resumed the offensive on the front and entered the second stage of the great drive. Following up heavy bombardment ot German second line defences, infantry attacked yes- Jerday morning and captured all second defences oa a four-mile ironfc. fThis advance was accomplished Immediate right flank which adjoins the French left flank. Thus has'the British line been swung up to its most eastern end to correspond ivith the French line -which had been pushed farther in the first offensive than the British, with more serious difficulties and superior forces to contend, had been able to do. The British _ have definitely now cleared the enemy out of Trones wood and. have captured Longuevale, Be- zantia and LeGrande, villages which command important positions. There are no changes on the French front to record, save of German attacfes at Terdun. On the Russian, front the Russians have taken numerous prisoners .along the Stripa in desperate fighting there. In Persia Russian successes against Jhe Turks continue. The greatest enthusiasm prevails in England over the British latest .offen- sive. All-authorities declare now that -.the.allies have, definitely assumed the and "will not relinquish it. SECTIONS OF COUNTRY IN "NEED OF RAILROADS There are several sections of coun- try tributary" toXethbridge.that are badly in need of transportatian. facili- ities and a persistent campaign should be pursued to keep them prominently -before governments and railroads. As -badly situated, if not wonse, than Iron -'Springs and Turin, are the settlements of Warner, Milk River and Almost every quarter section 3xi that country is occupied and farm- ers have to haul tfiirfy, tprty and in some cases fifty miles are becoming discontented. Rail- roads have promised to build, notably- .the C. N. R., but there is no likelihood of construction at present This coun- '.try is producing heavily but without transportatiGiftaeilities, continued duction will be discouraged. If a railroad is not soon, built settlers will begin to move out, discouraged and idisgustad. FRANCE FIGHTING AUTOCRACY AS !N 1789 The allied world yesterday celebrat- ed the French national holiday' in commemoration of Bastille Day, July 14, 1789: date France threw off the yoke, of the autocratic reigning .power, .which claimed authority by divine right, and, the republic was -set jap. v Now, a century and a quarter later, irre see Britain and France fighting aide by side on Bastille Day, and fighting a very similar: enemy to-t of the embryo .republic of France in 17S9. Then France fought an internal 'enemy who believed he was called of to rule France. Today, with the .help of Britain and other, powerful allies, France is figfctiag the inhuman Hohenzollern would Prussianize the world by virtue of the authority Jot 'divine .France won a victory in 17S9 just as she is helping to win a world victory over tyranny today. GRAFT IN SCHOOL AFFAIRS j An admission by C. Pendray, member of the well known paint arid soap manufacturing firm at Victoria, that he some time ago donated a check 'for to the Vancouver Conservative .association after a discussion with F. 'JW. Welsh, a member of the Vancou- ver school board, and that the amount had been added to the cost of an Border for soap for the school board, was the sensation sprung at the open- ing of the school board inquiry at lit is disgusting to read, of these re TelationB .of.graft in the larger and IDaHor affairs of the countrjr. Graft may be even more widespread in those smaller bodies than we imagine. Its spread into an. organization upon which is placed the responsibility of the- training of our young, is most de- plorable. The entrance of party poll- tics into civic and educational affairs is t9 be condemned If for no other than the party politicians of the Vancouver sort cannot resist adopting the worst methods knovru to politics. Undoubtedly every man who lias supplied goods to the Vancouver ;hool board has had to 'come through1 to a very common but well under- stood expression. CHURCH UNION MOVEMENT SPREADING H will be some time yet before church union between the Presbyter- ian, Methodist and Congregational churches' is officially effected. Rev. Dr. Baird, moderator of the general isgembly of the Presbyterian church, points out: "Recognizing the perturbed state of .he country on account of the war, the assembly contented itself with declar- ng in favor ut union as an ultimate JOlicy, but will not try to consummate he union -while war is on or even in ie excited months of reconstruction that follow the declaration of peace, jut will allow at least a year to elapse after the close of the war, and only then will ask for the authority of the assembly to seek for the necessary! egislatlon'from the Dominion parlia-j mer.t and from the provincial legisla-' tures." In a number of instances, especially m the west church union continues to be brought about by agreement be- tween congregations, an indication of :he strong sentiment in favor of the movement. Only recently the Presby- terian and Methodist churches at Mor- ris, Man., agreed to unite Immediately. [n Fernie a similar union has almost been negotiated. The Fernie Free Press says: "The boards of the Presbyterian and Methodist churches of this city have 3een negotiating for union for the past few weeks. A sub-committee appoint- ed a fortnight ago to draw np a basis of union reported to a full meeting of the joint boards on Tuesday evening n the Methodist church. After a full discussion the proposed basis, with a few amendments, was unanimously adopted. This basis will be printed and placed in the hands of the mem- jers and adherents, together with a ballot to be taken not later than Jnly 16th. If the vote of the congregations is favorable the matter will then be referred to -the Presbytery and Con- ference for.further action. One of the encouraging features of the negotia- tions so far has been'the spirit of fair- ness and harmony which has charac- terized them, not a jarring note hav- ing boon atrnci during any of the meetings." A small minority in any of the churches concerned in the union movement will not he able to prefent its' culmination. That is clear to those in touch with sentiment in Western Canada more especially.

FOR SALE BY ALL Three Good Guesses on Strathcona's F. C. Ottawa, July dispatches announce that Sir (icorgo 1'erley Is on his way homo to enjoy a well earn- ed vacation. While ho is in this 3io bids fair to romain whole question of a Per- raanent appointment as High Coinmis- sioner will he discussed. Sir. George Foster is the locum tenens during Sir George Perley's absence from England. The chances are that neither of the Sir Georsos will set the job for keeps. Sir George Foster vows that ho does not want it, -which is probably true; and Sir George 1'erley never expected to do more than warm the place fcl a little while until the real thins came along, lu fact, Sir Georsa Per- ley is the official chair-warmer for the Borden Government. He is n safe man. There is no danger, of his burning any chair he, sits on. The chair will be there ready for its per- manent occupant when the time comes. Consequently Sir George Tommy Church, Toronto's mayor, was in the west last week. This plains-the big wind which visited the western provinces at that time.

Since an Ottawa battalion can't arouse civil servants to leave the peace fcnd quietness of their offices to strva their country In'a'more stren- uous field of labor, it is proposed to fill up the'Shortage by-bringing men from western battalions. If such a proposal was endorsed by the militia department there would be an uproar on these western plains, Tlie west is doing its duty and it is going to place its men in western battalions. The Edmonton Journal very properly says: "If eastern battalions are under strength, with little hope of getting up to It, the proper policy is undoubt- edly'to combine the different units there-.and not .to use westerners, to enable'the older provinces to make a eiCKEDUPIN FOR THE BTTSV MAN The Bank of Hamilton .will -open a hranch in Calgary.

Porloy has at ono time or another boon -Acting Minister for everybody in tho Cabinet. As a second fiddler ho Is hard to beat. The coustim- imitlou of his vicarious career occur- red when he was sent to London as High Commissioner pro tern; his col- leagues being fully confident that he would not set tho Thames on fIro or create any disturbance that might mean his continuance, in the olllco. Possible candidates for the posi- tion are plentiful enough. 'half trying I can- mention three- Premier Bordeu, tho Honorable Bob Rogers and Major-General Sir Snm Hushes. There is also a dark llorso who can brush them all aside and have it if he mean the man behind the Shaugli- nessy. H the Baron's aspirations lead to a country gentleman's lite in England, with a town house, a seat n the House Lords, the High Corn- nlsslonershlp for Canada to nui an edge on his importance, and llltiiuate- y a tomb in Westminster Abbey, as a" -builder and supporter of the Brit- sh the Baron wailts it, repeat, lie can have it, because the Baron is the C. P. R. made flesh, and all he has to do is to take an air line anything he wants in the gift of he Canadian government. Moreover, the Baron is persona jrata with the royal family In the shape ot the Duke of Connaught, vhose honored guest he frequently vas at ttiueau Hall. Indeed, the Duke vas very fond of the Baron, whose percentage of week-ends at Govern- nent House averaged twice as many as any other public man's in Canada. f Baron Shaughnessy elects to spend the sunset of his days in Etogland, la will have a glqrious time and the entree to exclusive circles which Strathcona nover achieved. What's more, he would make as shrewd a rligh Commissioner as Canada ever lad in Loriilon, with a wide practical outlook on Canada's needs and re- sources, not to mention his life long experience in handling the most com- prehensive enterprise in the Domin- on. The Baron may choose, however, 0 remain in Canada, until the rail- way problem is solved in a way that doesn't give the C. P. R. the worst of it. When that last bit is done he Baron may consent to dismiss himself in peace to larger glories of British politics. The candidate next in order is Sir Robert Borden, who would have- no objection to a landed estate, say in Surrey, and the title of Baron Borden of Nova Scotia, faid jNova Scotia standing not only for the province he CQines" from, hut also for the bank In wiiich he is a large shareholder, Sir Robert has-a massne constitu tibnal mind and would much enjoy iieing an imperial statesman with pur- ple opinions. Sir Robert has no ihildren, and as England has always oeen generous with peerages for Can- adians who had no families to carry on, the title would be an easy matter. Sir Robert is no lover of the strife and clamor of Canadian politics. His is 'a temperament that desires more: placid triumphs. This war Sias been a great worn' to him, especially the Sam Hughes part of it, i thorn m his side which he is obliged to Che ish ItJs'a matter of general comment that .the Premier has agen ten years In" the last two and that he wears a haunted look. Only his strong sense 01 duty has kept-him at a post which daily Increases his burdens. .Sir Robert is no vill go through with it if It kills he-1 would probably welcome the chance to get away from these alarms and reap a little ease and' dignity in the Mother Country, where the noise this fair Canada of ours makes over Its politics would be soffened by dis- tance If you asked Sir Robert what he thinks of it right now he would plobaljly reply that .it sounds too much like a Sousa march played on the bagpipes to be grateful to a sen- sitive ear. Besides, Sir Rpber can- not fail to have 'noticed that now is a good time for disappearing. Sev- eral ot his colleagues have heard the rumblings of the next general elec- tibn and have sought permanent shel- Coderre and Pelletier on the bench, Nantel on 'the Railway Commission, Speaker Sproule in the Senate Besides, quite a few of the rank and flle show the same tendency to take care of their health and vide for a rainy day by annexing Government jobs. 'The Honorable Bob Rogers is an- other the briskest, one of the lot. The Honorable Bob has a business head on him and would probably make the High Commission- irship pay for itself instead of being ii source "of expense as it is now. If the Honorable Bob has not pressed, his claims before it is because he preferred to stay in Canada and face any music he was responsible for, tlius differing from Major-General Sir Sam Hughes, who comes back only when telegraphed for. The way things' are going in Manitoba this country has no charms for Bob.. Tom Kflly heading for jail and Sir Hod- niond iRoblln. and two of his col- leagues trying to keep the mud out of their a sad sight and cal- culated to draw- tears from a harder heart than Bob's. The chances are the after the war, Westminster Hall, built I believe by William Hutus, will have to be reconstructed.
